Dean Cain Partners With Anti-Trafficking Org in New Movie Series

By Movieguide® Staff

Dean Cain announced that The Lifeboat Project and JCFilms would partner on an upcoming series of movies addressing human trafficking. 

The project reportedly includes three movies under the series title NOT FOR SALE: AMERICA. The upcoming movie is called NOT FOR SALE: FLORIDA. 

“The mission of The Lifeboat Project is to raise awareness of the issue of human trafficking and to empower the lives of survivors through long-term aftercare, residential programs, trauma counseling, housing, personal development, and educational resources,” The Lifeboat’s mission statement reads. 

The Lifeboat’s producing partner JCFilms has a similar passion for raising awareness regarding human trafficking through hope-filled, faith-based movies. 

“I am thrilled to be given the chance to co-produce this project with [JC Films President] Jason [Campbell] and Dean. I believe in honesty and having integrity when it comes to the nature of this work. I think conveying the truth about this crime against humanity, while also honoring the survivors is what our community needs,” Jill Bolander Cohen, CEO/Founder of The Lifeboat Project, said. “As a life-long Central Floridian, I want to ensure that this film will not bring a negative light on our community, but rather show an accuracy of how Floridians are engaged in the fight against trafficking.”

Central Florida is known for its booming tourism market and thriving hospitality industries, but a silent enslaved population of human trafficking victims hides among the millions of people that travel throughout the region. According to the National Human Trafficking hotline, Florida is ranked third in the nation for human trafficking. It is also a $160 billion dollar industry world-wide. The goal of this film is to make all communities safer, more informed, and vigilant to this growing epidemic. NOT FOR SALE: FLORIDA will depict true stories of human trafficking crimes. This film will also showcase an inspiring new narrative of how the hospitality industry is winning the current battle against human trafficking. From the Uber drivers to the hotel clerks, the film will portray how the service industry is working with law enforcement to end this pervasive evil.

The Lifeboat Project and JCFilms will be hosting a fundraiser event to kick off production for the film on Friday, July 16th, 2021 at The University Club of Orlando. The event will also host a VIP meet and greet opportunity with actor Dean Cain. The VIP tickets will be limited.

Movieguide® previously reported on JCFilms:

There is a new faith-based movie studio in town. JC Films is a family-friendly and faith-based studio located in Tempe, Arizona, to shoot 12 movies next year.

“Our goal is to do between 6 to 12 films here next year in Phoenix,” Jason Campbell, president of JC Films, said. “We just want to be a hub … for people of faith to get together and make family-friendly content.”

First on Campbell’s docket is FORGIVEN, which stars actor Dean Cain and has already begun shooting.

“Telling a lot of personal stories, and no story is too small,” Cain said.

Campbell hopes that his studio will provide faith content to a large market of believers in the U.S. and act as a potential kickstart for more movies based in Arizona.
